Another writer is working on a great book about different boys growing up in the same location at different times.

My book is about a young boy growing up in the 1860 time frame and how he lives after both of his parents are gone. He finds gold, gets a job riding for the Pony Express and meets his life partner at Buckland Station. They move back to his ranch and are getting ready to start mining gold in a major way.
